Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Absolutely delicious - sometimes I add a little provolone to the top. Great way to use bread thats a little stale.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
Absolutely out of this world. I was hesitant about the dry leek soup mix but it adds a different flavor then the usual spinach dip that makes it stand out. To add a little color, suggest adding a little chopped red bell pepper or pimento.

Ham Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2003
Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!! I am not a big fan of ham salad but this was great. Ran the ham through the food processor to save a little time and would suggest cutting the mayo down a bit; start at 2/3 cup and add to taste. Added a little more sweet relish to make my mother happy and it worked out perfect.

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2003
I gladly give this recipe five stars even though I didn't have grapes on hand. I substituted some on hand crushed pineapple, 16 ozs, and it turned out fabulous. Made this for a party and loved it. Note: cut the salt down to 1/2 tsp.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
My 10 year old made these for science class and they turned out great. Had to add additional flour like others but followed the recipe exactly. They didn't look pretty - she's only tne but they were great. Reheated them in the toaster oven on the 2nd day and they were great again. Tim, thanks for the recipe. P.S. my daughter was the only student in three years to do pretzels for the project - everybody else did sweets or bread.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
I really loved this. I had my doubts but the sauce turned out great and was an improvement over traditional alfredo sauces because the consistency stayed smooth and creamy even as it cooled. I did make one change and used one cup of half-and-half and one cup of milk. The recipe says that it makes four servings but it seems to make at least six. I'm going to use the left over sauce on some steamed veggies tomorrow for dinner. This is definately a five star recipe!!

Amusement Park Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2004
Absolutely delicious! My mother who hates cornbread agreed to taste it to placate me and ended up eating two big pieces. Had a great sweetness to it. Perfect with chili and jalapenos would make a great addition.

Super Grouper

Reviewed: May 17, 2004
I probably shouldn't rate this as I differed on quite a few things but I'll share anyways. I brushed the fish as directed with the butter and lemon mixture and also added the spice mixture as directed. But rather than broil, I grilled the fish low heat for about 12 minutes - flipping it halfway through (I had it in a fish grilling basket). I omitted the extra butter and mayo at the end but I didn't even miss it. The fish was delicious. This recipe is so easy and I can guarantee that this will become a weekly favorite. I added a side of alfredo sauce over noodles with shrimp and garlic bread to finish out a quicky and easy dinner.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
This is in response to Katie1217's review on 06/16/09. If you note, Robin Millers recipe is from 2005 and mine was posted in 2004. After your comment, I searched her recipe and it is not word for word as you erroneously stated. Also, I would have to have ESP to post a recipe that did not appear until a year after mine.

Swamp Frog

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Was a big hit, wouldn't change a thing but you might want to warn your guests-while strong, I don't think many people realized just how much of a pack it punched.

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
My friend made this for dinner last night and even though he didn't have bleu cheese on hand and had to use bleu cheese dressing instead, it was so good! Absolutely loved it!

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Absolutely loved it! Used canned roasted diced tomatoes & added sliced black olives. Didn't have fresh basil so used dried. This will surely become a weekly staple for dinner.

Monterey Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Loved it! Only made one change and used sliced mushrooms instead of chopping them. This was so easy to make and would be great to serve to guests. Only ate a small piece of chicken because I gorged myself on the veggies.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I've tweaked it a bit after all these years; add additional can of drained diced tomatoes, add chicken a little later on (if possible, an hour on high or 3 if on low) and I add raw shrimp an hour prior to finish time. We like ours a little soupy as my husband dips his bread into the juice but half the chicken broth if you'd like it less soupy. This is in response to Katie1217's review on 06/16/09. If you note, Robin Millers recipe is from 2005 and mine was posted in 2004. After your comment, I searched her recipe and it is not word for word as you erroneously stated.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2003
My mother proclaimed this bread excellent and ended up eating it and only it for dinner last night. It was still warm when she tried it and she said that with a little butter, it was like a dessert. I accidently bought milk chocolate chips but they were delicious anyways! I did cook it for about 10 minutes longer then suggested and it turned out perfectly done. P.S. She ate it for breakfast also!

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Turned out great and so easy to make. Used a dry rub on them and let them marinate overnight and baked them without the sauce. Added the sauce when I threw them on the grill for a couple of minutes. A keeper!
